Coaching for many of us is similar to mentoring or therapy. Which is the stark contradiction of it – coaching is everything else apart from giving advice.

And the best part? You’re not being judged or advised, you’re simply directed to your own answers and stories (and you’re the one to do that!). Want to learn more about coaching?

By no means are we saying you need coaching, but take a look at this free coaching session to get started.

Humans love being in a system – we probably crave routines and schedules. Not every day is the same. Schedule different routines for each day. You may not have the same energy every day.

Some of us love evening showers, it gives us something to look forward to. Or some might like to schedule all their outdoor tasks on the same day. Find what works best for you and play around with it.

Try this: Work backward to create the schedule – adhere to end time or the last task. This might help you to prioritize your tasks.

#Take breaks

A lot of us feel the need to prove ourselves as a hard worker just because we’re working from home. So, we tend to start early on our work and finish up late, and sometimes also skipping meals in between.

Work hard, sure, but leave the office when you’re done for the day. It’s tempting to hop on the bed and continue to do work on your laptop. That’s just extending the workday. This will create more unproductive work from you.

Try this: No working from bed ever. Commit to doing one thing at a time to get a break. Remember the stretching you missed in the morning? Save it for your break time.

#Dress up

Whether it’s your office or yourself, dress up for your work. You already have a dedicated space to work (if not, just clear the clutter). Let some natural light flow on your table, have small plants to liven it up, replace that distracting mousepad, keep it neat – there are tons of ways to make your home office the-way-I-love-to-work.

Avoid working in your PJs. Sure, WFH gives you the freedom to dress up as you like. This does not mean you can’t wear that jacket you saved for the big day in your office.

Try this: Pay attention to what inspires you to come to work and reflect that in your home office. Avoid bed slippers or sandals or whatever you call it – it just kills the mood to finish that presentation.

This was a long post, and I hope you found some tips that will help you to be more productive while working from home. Let’s help each other to stay productive at home.
